Recent Portrait commission for East Coast Skate chief Chris Allcock and Girlfriend.
This was a challenging piece to get right. It's tough to find a balance when drawing long hairs, slowly draw all the lines carefully or swoosh 'em out with long sweeping strokes? A bit of both seems to do it.

Latest piece - made from 80% fun and 20% serious thought.
The main theme of this image is 'Tangibility'. The nostalgic tactile nature of retro audio gear contrasted against the fleeting and beautiful exsistence of small, wild birds. Also the idea that sound itself can never be fully harnessed or grasped but only experienced. These where the general feelings I wanted to bring together.
(I slightly changed the colour scheme since the Snippet teaser as the colours really didn't work on paper!).
Framed and unframed prints of this image are available NOW at Cherry Cherry in Norwich, which I'm pleased to say has been selling a steady stream of my work so far.
This image is also available from my Society6 page.
Im sadly not at Latitude this weekend, so won't be seeing the awesome Grizzly Bear on stage :_(
